    As far as advantages go:You get a jump start on carbonationYou retain more aromaOthers have
    suggested you can suppress certain fusels with pressurized fermentation and your krausen will
    not be as high...

    I tried making one once but could never tell if it was holding pressure. It always read 0 even
    if I set the valve to 10psi. I read somewhere that the pressure relief valves, once activated,
    let all th...

    Couldnt you just put a piece of mesh bag (such as day tripper posted) over the end of the
    siphon in avoid plugging the poppets/ball lock?Yes, that's an option. My experience, though, is

    I think some pros flush the hops in a chamber before adding them to the fermenter. Probably
    overkill on the homebrew level. But I guess if you can't do a decent purge in the conical, then
    why not. It'...

    What kind of beer?I do mostly super hoppy IPAs and they are "green" for a few weeks. I'd say
    they really start getting drinkable about 3 weeks after brew day. The flavors need some time to
    smooth out ...

    Brewed this up on Friday. The grain bill is based on what is listed for Congress Street on
    Trillium's website. I had to guess at the percentages.Bury Me In SmokeSG: 1.068 (not certain on
    this since I ...
